Slater and Farber first started dating each other in 2011, but split after three years of relationship in 2014. At the time, Slater had said, “I don’t think we’re supposed to finish together. I think there are other people that might make us both individually happy, but I’m always going to be his best friend. It has just happened in the way we have gone from a beautiful three-year relationship, which I love and cherish, to best friends.”

“Babe, I wanted to do this for such a long, long time. I love you so much. Will you marry me?,” he asked his lady love. After the show, he popped the question again to Slater with a pink sapphire ring.
